No band turns to crap because they gain popularity. It's anti-MTV elitists that make them seem like crap, when in reality their sound only matures and becomes better. If you really like a band, you won't be pissed off and start hating them because they have a couple more fans or they've decided to greaten their musical boundaries. It's people like you that make really good music seem like shit because it gets played on the radio a lot.

How about you don't be an ignorant puppet who follows the trend of everyone else and don't say a band sucks because they're famous now?

RHCP even more so than metallica...
I dont like either of these bands (I like real metal) but the old RHCP was legendry.

Just to clarify the reason why I say Metallica is nothing to do with their popularity. I liked all of their stufff up to and including some stuff on the black album. After that they seemed more intersted in writing songs that would get them played on the radio rather than kick ass metal.

I have no idea, since I'm not telepathic and I can't see into the minds of bands and see exactly what made their style change.

Instead of using Valves, could I use Light Bulbs instead? If so, would the new energy saving ones be OK? Coz I do a lot of playing

Personally, I believe Metallica went more downhill before they got popular, right when Cliff died. ...And Justice For All was alright, and "One" is the most overrated Metallica song by far.

But yeah, their popularity combined with Bob Rock killed Metallica.

Edit: Oh, and Children of Bodom seem to be aiming towards the path of suck as well.

According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Even if they're "crap" they're still doing a lot more for the music scene than you are by bitching about it.
#22
^ Well, TECHNICALLY most of us are doing less for the music scene than, say, avenged sevenfold, but I don't think anyone would argue their worth against their total fucking image-obsessed faggotry.

OMG TEH GRATE BANDZ ALWAYS SELLOUT WTF

Seriously, musicians grow up. When you're 35, rediculously rich, and married with kids, it becomes a little difficult to write angst-ridden songs about being 19 and lost. It's not that they're selling out or buying into the hype, they're just doing what we all would do in their place. Music fans (especialy young ones) always act so shocked when bands change over time. Everybody changes over time. Get over it.

Give it a rest on Sevenfold. They're a pretty talented band, especially compared to most of the crap out there today.

And yeah, I'm not a big fan of their image myself, but they write some pretty damn good music in my opinion.

obviously your opinion to which your entitled mate so don’t take what I’m saying as having a go but honestly if anything I’d say that AFI latest effort miss murder is nothing compared to say .... sing the sorrow.

While its still a decent album I honestly don’t think black holes and revelations is as good as origin of symmetry was for muse either.


however for me one of the bands i think has let fame go to their heads and slipped because of it would be trivium, i mean listning back through Ember to Inferno and then ascendancy they were great albums (especially given the age of the members when they were written) but something about the crusade just makes me feel theyre taking that whole new metallica label way too far.

I don't think i would've cared about heafy ditching the "metalcore scream" either in favour of singing if he'd been a bit more honest and had just said he wanted to sing, instead of saying his voice was never strong enough to sing .... even though he actually sang pretty well on the previous 2 albums.

I'll cut you a break since you've only been here a month, but any opinion you have has been shoved in our faces for years by arrogant fucks like you. I'm sure you feel you've garnered plenty of respect now that you've jumped the bandwagon and thrown daggers Sevenfold's way, but the truth of the matter is that regardless of if they are "real" metal or not doesn't in any way take anything away from them. If you're so much better and they're hacks, go prove them wrong. But instead, you'll sit on your high horse and toss insults down at them and just annoy everyone with the same argument we've all heard twenty times before.

To make a long story short, grow the fuck up. Try accepting something, not exactly liking it, but accepting that maybe somebody else will and trying to be respectful of everyone's different musical tastes instead of shitting on everything that doesn't tickle your god-damned fancy.

I gotta agree with you there. I think AFI definitely took a risk with the new album, and I can respect that, but it backfired immensely.

Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Stadium Arcadium is pop rock bullshit, as is everything after Californication, which was pretty poppy in itself.

Oh well, John Frusciante's solo career ftw!

Metallica.....Cliff is what kept them original and from cahing in on their fame but after they died they pulled off Justice and went down hill.....Bob Rock is an evil evil creature....and I think if Mustaine hadn't been kicked out for drinking(Then James went to rehab wtf?)then they would have kept to their thrashiness....
